While cruising on the Hype Machine this morning I found this new track (or at least new to me) by Wintersleep, the Canadian indie rockers who brought us great songs like “Weighty Ghost” (remember that one?) and received a Juno award in 2008.
I have to say that it always excites me to learn about great Canadian musicians, and also to see their success and be able to share some of their talents with whoever chooses to read earphone adventures. It makes me proud of Canada!!
Anyway, back to Wintersleep. These rockers have a new LP coming out mid-June – only a month away! Their sound is fresh on this new track but they also sound familiar, possibly because you can hear similarities between the sound of “Nothing Is Anything” and their older material. It has a breath of fresh air though, and makes me think of a warm Summer day with a cool breeze. I picture myself blaring this tune while I drive across the mountain on Jeju with the windows down and the sun shining. Or maybe during a Canadian West Coast road trip through the Rockies? Mmm. Sounds great to me.
Check out this track and let me know what you think. Wintersleep releases Hello Hum, their new album, on June 12th and also has a free track for download on their website right now. I also embedded it below for you :)
Muchos love, music fans.
